I don't think it can. The semantics of BOOST_TYPEOF is that of:
auto x = expr;

The semantics of decltype are quire different. For instance, auto and
BOOST_TYPEOF and GCC's __typeof__ never deduce references -- always values.
decltype on the other hand can deduce references.

I guess BOOST_TYPEOF could be implemented with decltype(auto).
